AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, has been awarded a contract by the Nuclear Energy Company of Slovakia (JESS), for a major environmental impact assessment for a new 1000MW nuclear power station at the Bohunice site in Slovakia. The three-year contract is a key strategic development for AMEC’s nuclear business in Central and Eastern Europe and significantly increases the portfolio of activities in the region. The value of the contract was not disclosed.
Clive White, president of AMEC’s Clean Energy Europe business said, “The contract is for the provision of a full environmental impact assessment, which is vital in ensuring the approval of neighbouring states and other key stakeholders for the development of the Jaslovske Bohunice station.
“It is an area in which AMEC has recognised skill and expertise and confirms us as a major player in the new build programme being developed across Central Europe.”
Pavol Stuller, director of AMEC’s Central Europe business, said, “This contract was won in the face of some strong competition and will enable us to demonstrate the technical skills we possess throughout the business, while also enabling us to call on the considerable expertise of our local partners in Slovakia.”
